“How is it that we fail to act right,
see right, communicate right,
even though we have all the resources?
What are the indications of this failure?
What indicates that all is well?
Arjuna of the Indian epic Mahābhārata
represents the model of what clouds our
consciousness and what can break this cloud.”
– TKV Desikachar introduction to the Bhagavad Gītā
